He’s gone

Vincent has now been sold and returned to the UK.

Tomorrow the house becomes ours. We have some more French red tape to deal with after that and then will be free to begin viewing potential replacement motorhomes. Hopefully we will soon have news of a new snail shell and plans for trips around France. We really want to get off to somewhere new in the Autumn – possibly Champagne.

If you have a nice French-plated LHD moho currently for sale in France, why not let us know what you have on offer. We might be able to get together.

As for updating the blog, we do now have at least a dining table and chairs to sit at the table. So the laptop can come out and I can do some work at last. Things will be even better once the desk arrives. Connection and bandwidth remain issues for the time being.

Off the road

Just the briefest of catchups after a long silence.

We have been off the road since the 13th April, when moved into our rented property. Within days the brakes failed on the van. They are now fixed but we have also bought  a car. Vincent is now for sale. Serious enquiries invited.

Vincent cannot be replated here and the insurance will be invalidated once we become French residents rather than holidaymakers and so we need to part with him with some urgency,

Very sad to be parting with him. We have had some tremendous times together.

Two Snails will come back to life probably after we have said goodbye to the Roadtrek and then bought something far more boring (and acceptable to the French Government). In the meantime, I do hope to add some more details of our recent and not so recent travels.

It's quite a climb from the Aire by the river and up into the town of #Bellac Love the way that the old houses cling to the steep hillside. Do not love that hill! Went to the Notaire's office to collect copies of the Compromis and to kick off the 10 day cooling-off period.
